Subject: Good and informative.
Prof. Knuth talks about the choices he made (and the reasons) for notations used in the Discrete Maths and TAOCP. The content may seem very shallow to those who expects a low level discussion - who'd consider reading the books ;) . I really appreciate the quality of the video.

Subject: A nice lecture by Knuth
I downloaded the 64kb MPEG4. That's not high enough quality to see what he puts on the overhead. It tracks fairly well as an audio only lecture, though.

Knuth didn't make his fame as a speaker, and it shows. Nonetheless, he makes a tolerably interesting lecture about a few examples of the notation of mathematics and how it's changed and developed. There's not much math needed to understand the lecture; anyone interested enough to download it can probably follow it.
